Windows Explorer has a preview plane. I plut my camera memory chips into the USB, open a window on it and it shows the pictures. I can rename them, delete the bad shots, move them around. For manipulating them I generally use Irfanview (free). My phone has some special software that lets me access the memory card with Win Explorer. Easy, fast.
Thanks Tom. Windows Explorer didn't do it, but Files Explorer seems to have done it. Don't actually know what I did and how, but got instructions printed out, so should be able to duplicate it. And apparently I can save pictures too, but by that time was getting a bit of brain burn, so passed for now. And Irfanview never showed.
This will save me heaps of trouble. Just before my computer fouled up, again, I am pretty sure I had figured out how to size my saved pictures, so when I print them, the will come out almost exactly the same size as my finished designs for my cane handle designs. Actually most of my handle designs are simple enough I can freehand them in less time then it would take to glue down a finished design. But there are some that are detailed enough it would take a LOT of time to draw them out hours in fact, and maybe count on making them accurate. This way (when the method is perfected) I can print the designs out on paper that will literally become invisible when glued down. This will make precise handles time after time.
Still experimenting on this, but found out a bit ago that printing on certain papers, then gluing them down, the print stays, but the paper can't be seen, unless you look very closely. The first success was using some toilet paper, the commercial type, from my local grocery. I have experimented some since, but then the compter foiled me. Now I can get going on this again.
But was able to relax a bit earlier. Watched what may have been a very entertaining documentary I think it may have been, title was Mad Monkey Kung Fu. Very educational.
